SOURCE: RV ROOF TOP AIR CONDITIONER TRIPS BREAKER

Possible low voltage condition would cause that kind of a problem. To small a cord without the ability to carry and maintain the voltage would cause a voltage drop. I would test the voltage supply and make sure it is within 10% of that required for your A/C to operate properly.

Is your condensing unit located in a well ventilated area and have an ample space, atleast a foot, from the rooftop flooring? Just make a check that free flowing outside air properly ventilates the condensing unit specially on high ambient temperatures. Hope this would solve your problem

it is normal for a breaker that is run right on the edge (50 amp and your furnance to use 45) to get weak after a while . the first thing you should do is change the breaker with the same type and amp rateing . it should take care if it

SOURCE: Fan works, but if A/C turned on, trips breaker within a few minut

You need to verify if the problem is the unit or the breaker.  To do this, you will need to measure the current it is pulling from the power source.
If the unit is pulling too much current, then the unit is the problem.  If the unit is pulling as much or less than its rated current draw, then the circuit breaker is worn out.
The units WILL pull more power when hot outside.  It should not trip a breaker unless something is wrong with either the unit or the breaker.
A current draw test will tell you for sure.
If it's not the breaker, then it's probably low refigerant causing the issue.

2012 winnebago access premier 22qp circuit breaker location


Look for a brown or black square box, usually located close to the floor. The upper portion of the cover should open then you press the upper center. However, I have seen the breaker boxes located in an outside storage compartment close to the shore power connection and also under the bed.

Oven heats up but wont get above 160 degrees


I assume you mean it trips the circuit breaker. If the circuit breaker is good, that means the heating coil is bad, and pulling too much electrical current. Sometimes circuit breakers fail, and trip at say 5 amps when rated at 15 amps. Have you electrician switch that breaker with another one and see if there is a difference. If not, it is a bad heating coil.

DeLonghi oil heater model HMW2400TG 10 years old. Suddenly started to activate the safety electrical switch 2-3 seconds after being switched on.


one of three things are common causes of this problem ...most likely, dust builds up enough to block air flow then the unit will overheat inside .. that will trip a thermal breaker .. the breaker will reset when the unit cools .. if that problem continues then it may trip a permanent breaker .. if that happens the unit will stop working .. take the unit outside and blow the dust out of it with air pressure.. .. another common problem is if the fan bearings start to freeze then the fan wont run fast enough to maintain proper air flow .. lubricate the fan front and back bearings with light machine oil or sewing machine oil .. don't use WD40 or oil containing teflon .. the lube life is about 5 years so yours is way overdue for oiling the bearings if you haven't done so yet.. a third problem that is common is the electrical connections inside the heater are made with crimped on rivets .. the rivets loosen sometimes with age and a hot spot is created at the loose connection (you might even see sparks there) .. that can also trip the thermal breaker and is generally not repairable at reasonable cost ...

Everytime my central air unit kicks on my circuit breaker trips. It didn't do this last year or even earlier this year


A circuit breaker 'tripping' everytime the AC unit kicks on 'most always' indicates a direct short (somewhere in the condensing unit), although it is possible that the breaker itself is bad - (but not likely).

Usually the cause of this 'short' will be - either the condenser motor in the condensing unit (outside unit) or the compressor - also in the condensing unit.

If you're mechanically inclined - and "very careful" around electricity - there is a fairly simple way to find out which component is causing the short.

Step 1 - Make sure the condensing unit (outside unit) is completely disconnected (electrically) , i.e. pull the fuses/turn off circuit breaker on outside unit and turn off thermostat.

Step 2 - disconnect the condenser motor (this is the outside fan motor). Note: when you disconnect the wires of the condenser motor "be sure" you mark/write their location, and wrap them in electric tape.

Step 3 - start the AC unit. If the breaker trips again you can pretty much rest assured it's the compressor that is shorted.

To prove it (without a doubt) - go to next step.

Step 4 - "be sure circuit breaker and thermostat is turned off" - and - 'reconnect' the condenser motor - and - then disconnect the compressor wires (mark wires and tape them).

Step 5 - Start AC.

If breaker doesn't trip - you know it's the compressor that is shorted.

If breaker 'does' trip again - then it's possible the breaker itself is bad (not likely) or there is a 'short' in the condensing unit's "wiring" somewhere (not likely).

My guess is that either the condenser motor or compressor is shorted.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck!

Air Conditioner trips the 110v breaker, only when the outside temp is above 90 degrees. Unit has been checked several time and the circuit board has been replaced, but has fixed the problem of tripping the...


'Breakers' - are tripped because they are exceeding their amp limits.

The 'hotter' it gets outside - the 'harder' your AC has to work - and under normal circumstances this is not a problem - but when you have a fan motor or a compressor that is starting to 'break-down' (electrically) - often the AC's amp draw will exceed the limits of the breaker - thus 'tripping' the breaker.

I would suspect either the fan motor or the compressor is causing your breaker problem.

Eventually - the component (either the fan mtr or compressor) that is 'going bad' will go out completely and your breaker will 'trip' and not stay on when you try to reset it.

At this point you will need a Service Tech to determine which one is bad.

There is a possibility that your condenser coil (the one that blows hot air) is 'dirty' which will also cause a problem similar to the one you have - but it is less likely.

Also - if you've had the AC 're-charged' lately - it's possible you are in a 'over-charged' condition - but again, this is not very likely.

hope this helps.

A heat pump starts losing efficiency below 30F or so. The aux. heat helps the heat pump keep up with heat demand. The Aux heat can be electric heat strips or another type of heat. Check to make sure you have power to whatever type of aux heat you have (breaker not tripped, no overloads tripped). If it is electric heat check the heat strips to make sure they haven't burnt in to. Hope this helps.

A/c outside not working


The buzzing noise is your contactor drawing in from your thermostat. The fan part of your unit is on a different circuit from your outside A\C unit. Your thermostat is the conductor of the orchestra tying ths units together. It may well be that your A\C circuit breaker has tripped, if it has there is a reason for it's tripping. Resetting the breaker by turning it off then on may get your unit running, but a technician needs to ascertain why it tripped. Or it could be a bad contact switch inside the outside unit not letting enough electricity through the switch. More than likely the first issue. Good Luck

Whirlpool electric dryer keeps tripping main circuit breaker


First off, be sure the pigtail is wired correctly to the back of the unit. Black and red to the outside terminals, white to the middle, green to the frame or cabinet (should be a green screw close-by). If that is ok, you probably have an issue with possibly a bad pigtail, bad outlet, wiring issue, or possibly a bad circuit breaker or breaker box. Probably going to be more of a electrical problem than a appliance problem. Good Luck!!!!
